MORE ABOUT THIS ITEM

Optifoam Gentle helps ease the pain and trauma of dressing changes.
Featuring a specially-formulated silicone adhesive that helps keep it
in place, Optifoam’s absorbent core absorbs and retains fluid, and helps prevent shear and friction.

Key benefits

  • Waterproof film acts as a bacterial barrier
  • Foam and superabsorbent core absorb and retain exudate
  • Silicone adhesive minimizes trauma and reduces pain upon wear or removal

Fact: Foam dressings help reduce hospital acquired pressure ulcers (HAPU).

Studies in the evaluation of the use of a foam dressing with silicone border on patients at risk for HAPU resulted in a significant reduction in pressure ulcers over a 3-month period with lower monthly incidence and enhanced prevention. 1
